The City of Dallas Office of Equity and Inclusion in partnership with Legal Aid of NorthWest Texas and other collaborating partners have established an eviction assistance initiative to assist Dallas residential rental tenants negatively impacted by COVID-19.
The initiative looks to address the eviction crisis with the goal of keeping families housed and educating tenants and landlords on their rights and responsibilities. To seek assistance:

- Must live in Dallas; and
- Must be at or below 200 percent of federal poverty guidelines; and
- Must be negatively impacted by COVID-19
